Atiqah Hasiholan finds Bajo dialect difficult: JP/Triwik Kurniasari

JAKARTA: Actress Atiqah Hasiholan, who just scored a challenging role in the new film The Mirror Never Lies about the Bajo tribe, admitted she found it difficult to speak the dialect of this tribe living in Southeast Sulawesi.

“It’s difficult to even find the dialect. I have been searching [for it] on the Internet. There are too few articles about the tribe,” Atiqah told reporters after the media screening in Plaza fX, Jakarta, on Tuesday.

She added that she had mingled with the tribe people in Wakatobi to understand their dialect.

“The intonation is very difficult. So I learned from the locals,” The 29-year-old actress said, as quoted by detik.com. — JP
